ICC YAF: - How Can ADR Be a Lifeline for Start-ups?

06 Jul 2022

Tunis French/Arabic
17:00 (CEST)
This conference will bring together practitioners from different worlds under one roof. Together, they will demonstrate how their seemingly irreconcilable worlds can fuse into one.

“Slow-paced Justice and fast-paced technology” is a sentence we often hear from tech entrepreneurs in Tunisia.

Join us for this conference organized by ICC YAF to debunk myths and prejudices about the Justice System and Start-ups and how ADR can be a lifeline for start-ups.

Who should attend?

All young arbitration and ADR practitioners 40 years and under, regardless of their professional background (in-house counsel, lawyers, law professors consultants, etc.) and all young entrepreneurs, representatives of advisory & mentoring organisations, representatives of start-up incubators, start-up accelerators, coworking spaces, and venture capital companies are welcome!

Objective

The first session will be an icebreaker between the two worlds of legal professionals and start-ups. Our speakers will present  ADR in a simplified manner to our audience.

Our speakers from the start-up ecosystem will share their experience in relation to dispute resolution in the fast-paced environment of start-ups.

In the second session, our ICC guest will talk about ICC’s Model Contracts for start-ups and how ADR can be a lifeline for start-ups. 

To top it off, an alumna from the Tunisian Willem C. Vis Moot team will talk about how start-ups can be a part of the ADR process (vis moot problem 2020-2021).
